A: Nice, cloudy bronze orange with thin foamy head

S: Sour, yogurt smell. Apples and citrus. Sweet tart and sour cherry. A hint of pineapple and hay. Musty grapes.

T: Very nice and smooth taste. Finishes like a medium bodies white wine. Tastes a little like cider.

M: Slight effervescence. Nice clean mouthfeel with minimum aftertaste. Refreshing.

O: As I'm learning more about sours, I'm really starting to enjoy them. This is an exceptional beer that is very refreshing.

Poured from 375mL to a snifter. Cork says batch 2551 from 2010.

A: A very cloudy copper orange with a thin white head that lasts for days

S: Sweet fresh green apples, some funk, and a latent peach aroma

T: A whole lot going on here. This is actually a little less dry than I'd like in a gueuze, but the flavors play well together. Initially, you get a rather sweet gueuze with a sour bite. After, some funk and some tropical fruits take over; think papaya and the bitter finish that mango sometimes has. The funk dances in between the fruit flavors and is very nearly the only thing keeping this beer from becoming cloyingly sweet.

M: Not quite syrupy, but rather thick for a gueuze. Very good carbonation and leaves your mouth wanting for more.

O: A very good gueuze, especially for the price (~$8-9/375mL here) and availability. I'm curious to see how this one ages and I expect it to do very well. It's considerably better and more complex than the normal gueuze, but I'm not sure that's it's almost twice as good.

Cloudy orange gold pour with a one-finger white head. Big sour fruit aroma. Delicious mild sour lemon taste upfront backed with a slight fruity sweetness. Also has a very nice oak character and light spice flavor in the medium body. Really well done beer that isn’t overly sour or tart and drinks very easy for the body and slightly high ABV.
